We now have three transplant centres set up as UK PSC paediatric sites: Leeds General Infirmary, Birmingham Children’s Hospital and Kings College Hospital. We recruited our first child to the study in June 2016 and a number of further patients have now consented.
Children consent and give samples in clinic, and this process is being followed in patients up to and including the age of seventeen.
We are keen to support other sites to set up for paediatric recruitment, regardless of the numbers of eligible children you see. Please contact Bridget Bell (Bridget.Bell@nhs.net) to find out more.
